Karen Michelle Nutt's, Lost in the Mist of Time is an exceptionally romantic time travel read. She pulls out all the stops as the adventure unfolds from the 1st page and doesn't let up until the end. All lose ends are pulled together without being rushed leaving the reader feeling very satisfied.
The heroine, Aislinn Hennessy is a successful romance writer in today's world. Or as he brother so indelicately calls it, smut books. The irony is she has never found or experienced true love and still retains her virginity. Don't get me wrong, Aislinn is far from being frigid or innocent as she manages to have relationships with men she can either control or walk all over and as soon as she realizes it she discards them. What Aislinn needs is a man she can't lead by the nose but rather stand beside her and show her what love is about.
Enter our hero from the 16th century Ireland. Sir Dougray Fitzpatrick, Lord of Dunhaven. He has already loved and lost, as his wife died in a tragic riding accident only a couple weeks after their marriage. Some time passes and Neala the local witch/crone and friend to Dougray has summoned him to tell of a vision she had about a magical mist that will carry him away from this time to meet a woman who will save his 'future born.'
Through these two very resilient and stubborn characters, Ms. Nutt weaves an amazing plot of intrigue, romance and self discovery. I am a big fan of time travel romance and Lost in the Mist of Time exceeded my expectations with all the adventure, plot twists and humor.
